We are fortunate to have many talented photographers present photography workshops throughout the year in a variety of popular Michigan destinations.
Todd and Brad Reed offer Photography Workshops throughout the year. Picture Perfect Weekend Workshops are for total beginners as well as seasoned professionals who have been shooting for decades. All photographers will learn and benefit from the Picture Perfect Workshops. Todd and Brad cover many technical aspects of photography, including shutter speed, F-stops and aperture, ISO, depth of field, etc. Their goal is to teach people how to make better choices with their own camera…and to have a thrilling experience while learning.
In order to be eligible for future photography workshops, the participant must have already taken the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshops at the Cartier Mansion in the past, attend the workshop at the Lamplighter, or be on file as the person who participated in the video series.
You must have taken either the virtual or in-person version of the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshop to attend this class. Cost is $450 which includes food and refreshments. The Lamplighter does offer a reduced room rate for all Reed students and those who stay will also receive a free 14″ matted print of choice from Todd & Brad Reed Photography. Space is limited to nine participants and room reservations should be made by calling the Lamplighter at (231) 843-9792.
You must have taken either the virtual or in-person version of the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshop to attend this class. Cost is $795 that includes a $250 non-refundable deposit. Class is limited to the first seven students. Participants stay at a home on Hamlin Lake, offering a great opportunity for a high level of personal interaction between photographers. You will have your own bedroom and several bathrooms are available. Lodging, all meals, and workshop fees are included in the price. The home has steep stairs and, during the outside portion of the workshop, participants will be hiking/walking on sand, dunes, etc. The main portion of the shooting experience is on a pontoon boat.
You must have taken either the virtual or in-person version of the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshop to attend this class. Cost is $2500 which includes lodging at the Americinn in Silver City, all meals, and workshop fees, snacks/drinks during class time, and picnic lunches in the field are included. Students are responsible for their own transportation and any meals that aren’t included. The Porcupine Mountains present a more challenging environment than the other workshops. There is more hiking/climbing on very steep, slippery rocks. Many trails may be muddy from rain or waterfall action, as well.
Todd & Brad Reed also offer private lessons. Cost is $100 per hour with a minimum of four hours (at a single time, cannot be split). This would be for one of the two photographers to give the private lesson. Availability is very limited. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule private lessons.
